Joker Plus Velcro 2016



no ratings


The Boreal Joker Plus takes the supreme comfort of our Joker Plus Lace, and adds the convenience of a strap closure. Great performance and slipper-like fit make Joker Plus the ideal training partner.

The Joker Plus features a super-comfortable semi-assymetric last and fast and simple strap closure. A high-quality split leather upper is combined with the PU Air Net™ padded lining for superior comfort. The Heel Fit System™ keeps the heel in place and provides additional padding around the ankle. The low tension IRS™ (Integrated Rand System) heel is a one-piece heel unit which securely holds the heel without any pressure points.

An EVA anti-shock layer under the heel gives extra cushioning. The medium stiffness midsole combines with the sticky and durable FS Quattro™ rubber for the ideal blend of edging support and long-lasting friction. Joker Plus is ideal for comfortable all-day climbing. Longer routes in the mountains, full days at the crag and extended training sessions; all the pleasure without the pain.

Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

Boreal’s latest model in its popular Joker series has a flat, symmetric last designed for all-day wear. The leather upper, synthetic mesh lining, and generous padding throughout make this the most comfortable shoe in the review. It sports the same 4.5mm FS-Quattro rubber that’s on Boreal’s high-performance shoes. One tester called these “unusually sensitive” for an all-day model. The toe is semi-stiff and slightly pointed for accuracy on edges and pockets, yet it’s soft enough to grab on slight overhangs. Soft padding surrounds the Achilles, and a thin EVA heel wedge absorbs shock on descents. The Joker Plus sports a high rubber rand, and the heel is rubber-coated for solid hooking. Two Velcro straps regulate the fit; a lace-up model is also available.
